In Leadership Through COVID-19 and Beyond the authors present a simple yet insightful framework, the Discovery Prism to support all of us in the turbulent times we are in. This is a guide to reconnecting the positive human energy in organisations toward shared purpose and extraordinary possibility. 

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused disruption on an unprecedented scale and calls for people in organisations to operate at a new level of consciousness in order to survive and re-emerge stronger. A different kind of leadership is urgently required that invites everyone to play a part in creating the kind of organisations where people and the planet thrive.

The Discovery Prism framework serves as a guide to organisational alignment and renewal, by mapping out what is and is not connected.  These broken connections cause confusion, disengagement and waste the precious human resource at the heart of any organisation. The exploration of the Discovery Prism helps create shared meaning, a clear direction and engaged stakeholders. 

The Discovery Prism describes a set of six lenses, which, when aligned, create an energy greater than the sum of the parts. Some lenses are familiar and already at the core of all business practice and others are often given little consideration but are key to creating an integrated organisation: resilient, sustainable and better placed to navigate the uncertainties of the 21st century environment. 

The three core lenses ask the questions: Why, How, What, Who and Where and When. They are:

1  Bigger Purpose & Core Values: Why are we here, and how are we together

2. Mission & Stakeholders: What do we do and who do we serve

3. Vision: Where are we going and when will we get there

Their intersections form three further overlap lenses: 

4. Legacy: what we consciously create for future generations 

5. Promises: that we make internally and externally (i.e. culture and brand)

6. Strategy: how we deliver the vision

At the centre where everything overlaps is the Prism itself. This is a metaphor for the concentrated, directed energy (the single white light) coming from the diverse colours of the various lenses as well as from wide collaboration across the organisation and externally from all stakeholders. 

The book describes the rationale behind the framework: the challenges for organisations currently dealing with the impact of the global pandemic and how working with the Discovery Prism framework helps reimagine a sustainable future. It de...

Recensioner i media

"to achieve great things you must have an overarching purpose that can be easily explained and all will be compelled to serve. Leadership  Through Covid-19 and Beyond explains  the  theory and rationale in very understandable language as to how an organisation could  approach  this  -  using  examples  of  people  all of us can relate to. A pragmatic, transformational leadership book." 

Dr Donal Collins, GP Clinical lead for NHS vanguard team (UK), winners of Health Service Journal System Leadership award 2019 

"this update of the discovery prism couldn't be more timely. as organisations currently struggle to harness resources to plot a viable future, the elegant model in this book invites leaders to work with their full range of diverse stakeholders and construct a valuable future, based on co-created purpose.  Leadership Through Covid-19 and Beyondalso helps us re-imagine the meaning of leadership, inviting leaders to think of themselves as connectors and curators, rather than being the source of all the answers. It's a persuasive, practical and relevant resource and it will make you reflect deeply." 

Dr Rob Sheffield, Visiting Fellow, University of West of England, and Director, Bluegreen  Learning 

"i found the discovery prism framework a very valuable lens through which to consider my work and my future. anne and helen provide clarity and a practical approach that helped me take a step-by-step approach to the complexity of thinking through my purpose, values, vision and so on. it was a great support." 

Dr Emma Donaldson-Feilder, Affinity Coaching and Supervision, UK

"Leadership Through Covid-19 and Beyond is a book for extraordinary human times. The Discovery Prism presents a multifaceted organisational and team development framework for growing value and connection. New worlds require new rules and the book provides this. Nicely structured, thought provoking with lots of practical tools and references and some really great reflective questions equally apt for coaching leaders and teams."

Niamh Shiells, Fellow Association for Coaching, Leadership & Team Coach, Advance Coach Ltd, Ireland 

"it's very seldom that a new idea comes along that truly has the potential to radically enhance team and organizational performance.  the discovery prism framework is that new idea! Anne and Helen have delivered what I believe to be a 'best in class' leadership tool for 21st century leaders who want to support their organisations through and beyond this global pandemic. You must have it in your leadership toolbox!"
